A thought occurred to me about the perpetuation of JW abusive culture.
(I do not mean sexual abuse - I am referring to Emotional, or Behavioural abuses)
Most JWs are raised in the oppressive and abusive culture of JW life. They have been raised with low self esteem. Raised to believe they are sinful, never good enough, and in need of the direction by the Governing Body. They are in fear of Armageddon - and surviving through the Great Tribulation - with all its persecution narratives.
They grow up believing the warped doctrines and are subjected to the distorted behaviours.
They grow up being denied the right of higher education, normal dating and relationship experiences, and childhood social interactions with school friends etc...
But somewhere along the line, these ones becomes adults - strictly adhering to the doctrines. They raise their own children in the same culture. Many even rise through the ranks and become appointed leaders (Pioneers, MS, Elders etc)
SO, they become the very abusers themselves! The very enforcers of the same warped abuses that they were subjected to as children...
And so the cycle is perpetuated!
More victims result.....more lives are ruined!
